Justin Keller was the game's second star.
It was an unbelievably porous effort on a night where the Admirals really had a golden opportunity to get back to .500 and set themselves up nicely to make a strong run in the coming weeks. Just a bad let down in the second period.

A scoring change awarded Harju his second goal of the season in Dynamo's last game against Khabarovsk, breaking Harju out of a slump, but he was again scoreless today against Novokuznetsk. Harju played 15:05 and was 46% on draws. Former NHLer Mattias Weinhandl had Dynamo's only goal, and now has 11 goals on the season, which is tied for tops in the league.

Finally, the Admirals start to put it all together.

POR Byron, (2) (Mancari, Generous), 9:02
POR Ennis, (5) , 11:52
There was a lot of talk about learning how to finish games coming off a road trip where Norfolk squandered leads in two of three games. Although the Admirals allowed the Pirates to cut a 4-0 lead in half in the second period, they shut the door completely in the third, allowing the Pirates just 6 shots in the final frame.
Who are you and what have you done with Vladimir Mihalik? Mihalik protected one of his teammates in the first period after a big hit by dropping the mitts, earning an instigator misconduct in the process. He then returned to the game and added a helper on Ryan Craig's goal to go with his 17 penalty minutes. New season, new Vladdy.

He's now tied for third in the league in shutouts along with fellow Lightning property Vasily Koshechkin, and third in GAA. Omsk got a goal and an assist from former NHLer Anton Babchuk in the match.
